What is it called when a seam goes horizontally across the middle of your bust? Like an empire waist, but looser and higher. I've a top that's very flattering with one and I want some more. A bit like this:

Google is hopeless if you don't know what things are called!

Yoke - that's a yoked cardi, can be found in sewing and knitting. Great design feature in knitting, a stripey yoke is a nice feature.

Thank you. Would it still be called that in a non knitted top? I'm getting lots if results with jumpers with different colours or stitch patterns in the yoke, but not many with the actual seam construction.
